Jordan’s Olympic taekwondo star Ahmad Abu Ghaush has returned from Tunis where he completed his first training camp ahead of competing in Rio de Janeiro this summer.
Abu Ghaush, 20, camped with six other Arab Olympic qualifiers with three from Morocco and three from Tunisia to help step up his preparations
There will be a new scoring system for Brazil so the camp enabled Abu Ghaush to get used to it in a competitive environment.
He will head to Korea later this month for another camp followed by the Korea Open Championship which is considered as the final major tournament prior to the Games, which get underway on August 5.
He will then be based in Manchester, England until July 23 where he will train alongside fighters from across the world.
Abu Ghaush is one of three confirmed athletes for Rio, with boxer Hussein Ishaiash and triathlete Lawrence Fanous also on the roster. More are expected to be confirmed in the coming days.
